Cry of the Banshee galore

How weird is that! This morning (around 11!) the mailman delivered two parcels, one from Mexico and the other from Denmark, and they both contained CRY OF THE BANSHEE!! O_O

The parcel from Denmark contained 12 rare ex-rental tapes (thanks Mikkel!) and one of them is the old Vincent Price movie CRY OF THE BANSHEE. And from Mexico I got the Mexican lobbycard. You can gawk at both of them in the above. xD. Awesome! Now I just need to get the DVD as well, haha.

Well, actually the DVD (from MGM's reg. 1 "Midnite Movies" series) is necessary as it contains the original British version of the film. This Danish tape is a bit of a curiosity as it contains AIP's old American print! According to a reivew on by Jakob Skøtt, the US version is edited differently, scenes are swapped around, and some occult scenes are colour tinted. Obviously, I'd like to watch both versions.
